Cody Rhodes spoke on the Dale Jr Download program about Bruce Prichard and his importance to the company. Rhode considers Prichard a 'genius' “At the time, when I was in OVW, the one that I needed to impress the most was a man named Bruce Prichard.

He is a genius, remains a genius in the industry, and he was Vince’s right hand. You need someone to write down all these ideas, someone to formulate. Bruce came down and knew was he was looking at. He knew me, knew that my dad cared.

You could have done it as a favor for my dad, but the best favor he could do for my dad is lead me in the correct way. To this day, Bruce is still plugged in to WWE, he’s the main guy”. - he said, as quoted by!

Cody Rhodes on Bruce Prichard

After WrestleMania 39, Rhodes sat down with Prichard and they discussed some interesting topics. Bruce was and remains a big part of his career, and a man who deserves a lot. “When I lost at WrestleMania, I was adamant that I was walking up the ramp.

I’m not going side ramp or ‘losers lane.’ It’s the end of the show, 80,000 people, I want to look them in the eye, say sorry or ‘we’re going to get him eventually.’ When I walked up there, I wasn’t sure I was ready to walk into Gorilla.

I took a second and [Bruce] came out the curtain. He was just him and I. We had a nice moment and I’ll never forget it. In my mind, I was like, ‘I need to reverse this situation and we have this moment again.’ Bruce has been a big part of my career that I didn’t realize was a big part of my career until I got older”.
